I'm not a Windows user, but... Is it possible that Notepad tries to  
write-lock by default (since it's an editor), and fails? Put another  
way, have you tried other ways of reading the file? Heck, copying the  
file should be a read-only action. Can you copy it during the runtime,  
and open the copy?
